Nasca lines

Subseries contains the conductor’s score, instrumental, and vocal parts used for the premiere performance of Nasca Lines by Barry Guy. Nasca Lines is a one-hour, seven-part work that was commissioned by the Upstream Ensemble and premiered in collaboration with the Symphony Nova Scotia on June 3, 2001 at the Scotia Festival with conductor and composer, Barry Guy.

The composition is named after and inspired by the geoglyphs in the Nazca Desert, Peru, which include outlines of animals and various geometric shapes. Graphical representations of a selection of these geoglyphs are used in the graphic notation of this score, particularly in parts 3 and 7.

Nasca Lines is an atonal work that uses a combination of composed material, based on tone rows and pitch class sets, and guided improvisation. There are twenty instrumental parts and one vocal part.

MacRae Library Agricola exhibition - "An apple a day" from the Fred Sears fonds

Subseries contains a collection of photographs used in the "An apple a day" exhibit held at the MacRae Library in 1998, highlighting the photographic glass slides found on campus that were believed to be taken by Fred Sears. Dr. Alex Georgallas was the acting archivist and curated the exhibit of prints of the Fred Sears glass slides. Most of the photographs center around apples and orchard practices and buildings of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. Notes on some of the sleeves of the negatives suggest that they date from the period 1906/7. It seems likely that they are connected with courses taught by Fred C. Sears at the NSAC during this period.
